way OT

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/mrsa/DS00735 This is what my 3 year old granddaughter has. She was admitted to the hospital last night with MRSA in her blood, an enlarged lung, and pneumonia. My 2 year old grandson has been sick so he's also going to be checked for it. I'm trying to keep my older (12 yo) granddaughter's mind off of it and keep her busy. If you wouldn't mind could you keep these kids in your prayers please?

I will keep your grandchildren in my thoughts and prayers. My sister and brother both had mrsa and it is very complicated. They are however clean of it now so it can be treated. I am praying for good news!

I will be thinking of your granddaughter and she and you will be in my prayers. I can't imagine how helpless her parents feel right now, as I have a four year old daughter and am sooo desperate when she is feeling "off."

Oh Jan, I am so sorry to hear about this, but am glad that she is being treated. Most likely they have her on (Sp??) Vancomyocin, which is the strongest drug out there (to my knowledge) for MRSA. My son had two severe MRSA infections, the first got into his bone & he had a slight amputation, and the second in his leg, but so bad he was hospitalized on IV.
The good news is that they were able to treat it, and get him clean of the MRSA which had colonized in his body for a few years!

If I learned anything from this, a really good infectious disease specialist is what you want!!
My prayers and thoughts go out to your family and I hope for a quick recovery of your little granddaughter!

I'm sending up prayers for your entire family. My sister got MRSA while in the hospital recovering from surgery and they transferred her to another hospital where there was an infectious disease specialist. She was really sick and stayed for a while, but she is home and fine now. I know you are worried sick and just continue to ask everyone for prayers....because prayers do work. Please keep us informed and I will be keeping you and your grand childen in my prayers.
